NOTICE TO TH£ TRAD£, 



We take pleasure in presenting to our friends and the public our new Illustrated and 
Descriptive Catalogue and Price List of the various descriptions of goods manufactured 
and sold by us. With an experience of twenty-four years in our business, we are, with 
our judicious engineering and mechanical skill, enabled to furnish a very superior class of 
goods, A few years ago we could have imagined we had, with our facilities and valuable 
patents, reached the top round of "Jacob's Ladder/' when our inventor, Mr. M. T. Chap- 
man, discovered the process of pumping a hole into the earth, which is done by mechanical 
means, which enables the lower part of the well to be made faster than the upper part. 
But we have since added another round to the lofty ladder, viz: two tools that make a 
larger hole at the bottom than the one they passed through at the top, to let the casing of 
the well down easy. This is an accomplished fact, and is more than could have been ex- 
pected from the inventive genius of man. 

Since the publication of our last Catalogue, we have added many and 



important improvements, have invented new tools and improved those al- 
ready in use. Among the former we call attention to " Chapman's Patent 
Well Tester and Cleaner ;" we have also added to our business the manu- 
facture of Engines and Boilers suitable for well sinking. 

To Parties Wanting Well Tools. 

As a guarantee of good faith on our part, we will come and make a well, and show you 
that the tools do all we claim for them before we receive payment, as per our printed terms 
concerning the sale of Well Tools. 

Telegraph Cipher, 

In this fast age time is money, and we have adopted a system of telegraph cipher which 
will enable any of our friends wishing goods on short notice to order by telegraph, at slight 
expense, as nearly every article in our catalogue has a name (in brackets) to designate it. 
All orders will receive prompt attention. 

Terms Cash. 

No allowance will be made for exchange or express charges on remittances. Eight per 
cent, interest, from date of shipment, will be charged on all bills running over thirty days. 
All claims for deduction or damage must be made within ten days after receipt of goods. 
Our goods are all shipped in good order. We do not insure safe carriage or delivery. In 
case of damage your recourse is upon the transportation company. 

All bills due on first of the month after shipment of goods. 

A discount will be given to the trade. Our prices are subject to market change without 
notice, and this catalogue takes the place of all previous lists. In ordering by letter, please 
refer to the figure in catalogue and name in brackets. 

We ship no goods whatever to strangers without an advance to cover transportation. 
Iron pipe and heavy goods shipped from Chicago. 

Eespectfully Yours, 

AMERICAN WELL WORKS.

M. T. and M. C. Chapman are the inventors of the wells using an iron tube having an 
open end, and covered by a patent of September 24th, 1872, and having others patented 
March 4th, 1873. They did, in fact, cover by patents the use of the tube when the same 
forms the wall of the well, and the working barrel of the pump having an open end above 
and below, so that the working parts could be removed and repaired. 

Their Patent Hydraulic and Jetting Processes of making wells are now perfect, and 
there seems to be nothing that could be suggested that would improve the well or the man- 
ner of making it. 

We positively assert that a well cannot be driven straight, and that a hole cannot be 
bored straight, through the average soil. 

OUR PROPOSITION. 

To any parties wanting wells: We will make them regardless of the surface to be pene- 
trated, whether it be of sand, clay, rock or quicksand, or the whole combined, and guar- 
antee a first-class well. But as this will likely come to the hands of parties who have 
experienced difficulties with experimenting men and imperfect tools, we will give you One 
Hundred Dollars ($100) if we cannot make a well at any place you wish, (even where an 
Artesian, Drilled, Dug, Drove, Emigrant or Auger Holes, have failed) it being our fault or 
the fault of our tools. 

OUR $1,000 CHALLENGE TO THE WORLD. 

We will deposit $1,000 against any Drive Well or Auger Company's equal amount to 
make a well any place, through rock, clay and quicksand. The parties making the best 
well ,n the quickest time shall get the money and half the price of the well-the party 
getting the well shall receive the other half price of the well. 



It is our intention to collect royalties for infringements on the Chapman patents 
We are making a specialty of Well Sinking Machinery, and if you will engage 'in the 
busmess, we wdl furnish a man from the house to make the first well in ,ur territory to 
show you how to manipulate the machinery and teach you the science of we,, sinking 
Thts s a profitab.e bus.ness, and with our machinery the work is comparative* easy" 
Confidents cost of materta.s and profit of the business wi„ be furnished ,ou on app I 
t.on, tf we have no one engaged in the busine „ your neighborhood. ' 
Soliciting your favors, we are, 

Your obedient servants,

General Inquiries Answered. 



Question 1. — I see in your advertisement, you guarantee to make a well and furnish 
water where either an Artesian, a bored, a dug, a driven or a drilled well has failed to do so. 
How can you do this where the Artesian lias failed, and wherein is your process superior ? 

Answer L — By the Artesian process the well is drilled until the drill is prevented from 
dropping by the chips which fill the seam in the rock and quickly cement the crevices 
tight, thus preventing the water from coming in through the seams in the rock. Rock 
pulverized under water sets as readily as water lime, and if, when the tools are broken and 
left in the hole, they are not quickly removed, they -must be drilled loose before they can 
be taken out or the hole lowered. 

The expense of setting up an Artesian set of tools is about equal to the labor and first 
cost of making the Chapman Hydraulic Jetted Well of from three to five hundred feet and 
as a matter of profit it pays those making Artesian wells to shut off a vein of water within 
five hundred feet of the surface, because they get pay for the hole that is made, whereas we 
get pay for water at the depth found. 

Our wells are always clean, for by the Hydraulic process we take the chips out with the 
water, and clean the well as it is being made. Hence we get water where the Artesian 
cannot. 

Ques. 2. — Have you ever made wells in places where the Artesian has failed? 

Ans. 2. — Yes ; in Aurora, 111. ; Paxton, 111. ; Sioux City, Iowa, and other places. 

Que*. 3. — Does the water ever flow over the tops of your wells ? 

Ans, 3. — Yes, in a large proportion of them it does, and we supply Chapman's Deep 
Well Pump, free of extra charge, in cases where it does not* 

Ques. 4, — How can these deep wells be pumped? 

Ans. 4. — By hand, horse, wind or steam power. (Our pumps work comparatively 
easy. ) 

Ques. 5. — What kind of a wind mill do you recommend to work with your wells ? 

Ans. 5. — The American Advance, because it has a very long stroke, a wrought iron mast, 
a solid wheel, a very sensitive governor, is noiseless while running, very durable, simple 
and strong. It costs a little more than the ordinary mill, but is much cheaper in the end. 
It does not freeze up with sleet or ice. 

Qves. 6. — How can you make a well where an emigrant well has*failed, and«guarantee 
water or ask no pay ? 

Ans. 6. — That is easily done. In this case the well auger men cannot go through the 
hard pan ; they have to stop in the quick sand. The wells fill from the bottom ; sometimes 
they cave in and dry up ; rats, cats, rabbits, sewerage, or the alkalies get in and spoil the 
water* We put our pipe down in these wells through the hard pan and get a supply of 
water that cannot be exhausted, then fill up the old well. (See cuts of deep well valves 
and pumps.) 

-How do you make a well where a dug well has failed ? 

(See Ans. 0.) Put in a Chapman Deep Well Pump. 

-How can you make a well where the drive well screen chokes up or the well

able we put in a torpedo.

Ques. 15.— How long will it take to put down a well 100 feet in clay, sand or chalk 
rock ? 

Aiis. 15. — In river bottom sand or sea mud, one day ; in blue clay or soil, one day ; in 
chalk rock, from one to two days ; in sand rock, from three to six days ; in lime rock, from 
five to ten days. We do not mean to say that this is the exact time, but is a fair average. 

Ques. 16. — Are your tools durable, and are they capable of making a well without a man 
Spending half of his time running to a blacksmith shop ? If I get tools I want a durable 
set and one that I can rely on. 

Ans. 16. — These well tools are the result of a life of practical experience in the business, 
and the inventors watching closely all improvements made, and having men working in so 
many parts of the I nion and Canada, being also manufacturers, they have brought their 
goods to such a degree of perfection and worked up such a reputation, that they can now 
boast of the largest manufactory of its kind in the United States. Since we guarantee our 
tools, and will come and make a well for you before or after they are paid for, you run no 
risk in ordering. 

Ques. 17. — How long have these wells been in use ? Can you give me some references ? 

Ans. 17. — About fifteen years. (See references.) 

Ques. IS. — Have you had the well patented ? 

Ans. 18. — The well was patented September 24th, 1872. We have had several patents 
since, and ap plications pending for many of our improved devices and machinery. Our 
wells were formerly made by hand. Experience has suggested so many improvements that 
it seems now that all parts thoroughly harmonize into a simple and perfect set of tools, and 
we cannot now see the want of a single improvement. 

Ques. 19. — You have tools then that will drive, bore, drill, hydraulic, or jet, a well any- 
where, containing tools suitable to any soil ? Will you sell small or large outfits for differ- 
ent depths, or part of a set ? 

Ans. 19. — Yes ; we will sell any tools we make, but when a part of a set is ordered, cash 
must in all cases accompany the order. We cannot send a man unless a full set is ordered. 

Ques. 20. — Can I buy a set of tools, make my own well, and then sell my tools to my 
neighbor, who is in the same fix as I am ? 

Ans. 20. — Yes ; that is what Jenks & Son, of Yankton, D. T., did. They bought a No. 
2 set to make a well 500 feet deep. They made a 2-inch well on their garden farm 460 feet 
deep and got a good flowing one, and then they sold their tools for just what they cost them. 
Many parties do this. 

Ques. 21. — Will you tell me how you first made the Chapman well, how you discovered 
this rapid process, and the difference between the jetting and hydraulic process ? 

Ans* 21. — From 1868 to 1872, we drove an auger into the ground with a wooden beetle, 
then drove in the casing and put in screens as seen in Fig. 39. Ifext we bored and had 
a hand windlass to raise the auger, and drove the casing with a block of wood by aid of the 
windlass. (See Fig. 39.) Then we bored by hand, and used a horse-power to raise the 
auger and drive the casing. We raised and dropped the drill by means of a rope wound 
around a continuous running drum, a man tightening and loosening the rope to get the raise 
and drop. It took about an hour to put down and take up -the auger two hundred feet, but 
only a minute to fill it. i 

Then the hydraulic process suggested itself to us, and by this we can penetrate stone, 
clay, sand, gravel and rock, and make a well without taking out the tools for change as we 
reach the different stratas (at Akron, Colo., we made in Jan., 1884, 196 feet without lifting 
the tools from the hole) and on coming to water, we clean the vein of dirt and fine sand, 
leaving a beautiful bed of gravel to filler the water through. This was so perfect that we made a 
self-dropping hydraulic machine, which, together with the horse-power, drills and pumps, 
brings all the drill cuttings out of the well. At ease, with folded arms, the operator can witness 
the beautiful workings of this labor saving machine.

AMERICAN WELL WORKS, AURORA, ILL. 



The jetting process is similar to the hydraulic. The water is pumped down the hollow 
drill rod with great force, and passes out of the bottom of our " Paddy/ 1 making a large 
hole very quickly. The casing falls down by its own weight, and the cutting's come up the 
well with the current of water. (See cuts in this catalogue.) 

Ques. 22. — How can an Irishman (Paddy) get down so small a hole in such a deep well ? 

An$. 22.— We do not mean that a man is down there — it is the name of a new tool that 
does its work perfectly and exactly like a laborer digging with a pickaxe. With a blow he 
sends the pick into the ground, and then wrenches it loose. So every time this tool is 
dropped it sinks into the ground and pries it loose, making a large hole to let the rasing 
down easy. This tool can be used with the jetting or hydraulic process. It is so simple 
and perfect that the exclamation is : AVhy did not some one think of it I re ? 

Ques. 23. — If you will give me an insight into the profits of the business, and come and 
make a well at my place, and make it as satisfactory as you describe in your catalogue, then 
I will pay for the well and tools. 

Ans. 23. — You will find our special confidential prices, the cost of material, etc., and 
terms pasted in this catalogue ; if not, send for them. 

Qaes. 24. — I have been using much larger wells than you recommend, and not getting 
water ; it does not seem reasonable to me that you can furnish such a large supply in so small 
a well. 

Ans. 24.— If you will examine Fig. 116, page 11, of this catalogue, you will see that a 
2-inch well has an oil well pipe with a 2-inch hole leading from the top of the ground 
to the reservoir. This reservoir was sand, dirt, gravel and stone, but we moved all the 
fine substances and washed the gravel by the splashing of the water with the movement of 
the drill, leaving a clear operi space. 



West Po \ eb., Feb. 27, 1S84. 
I made i inch Chapman well for A. Leyse Weisner, Neb. It is 210 5-12 feet deep. We 
had a vent hole about } inch open at the time I made the test, and pumped eight barrels 
per hour from it. The gentleman I made the well for will vouch for the truth of this. 1 f 
the vent hole were closed it would supply fully one-fourth more, which would he over two 
hundred barrels in twent tour hours. \\ M ^ A LCH0W

PADDY EXPANSION DRILL. 

Ques. 1.— What advantage has the Paddy or Expansion Drill over ordinary Drills ! 

4ns. L— First— It will drill a hole below the casing, large enough for the casing to 
follow down easily which cannot be done with any other form of Drill. 

Second— It will drill much faster than other drills as the wings or bits pry the earth 
or rock loose and throw the debris up the hole in large pieces to be crushed by the vertical 
motion of the rods in its passage upwards with the current of water. 

Third— Hundreds of feet can be drilled without removing the Tools from the hole— 
I tut I recommend that not more than 200 feet be drilled without removing them. 

Fourth— No jars or beamer are needed. Its action is such that the force of 
the blow will expand the wings, hence when it is lifted they close. The sinker bar and 
jars are at least one-third the weight of the Tools, and since we dispense with tlies- 
we save fully 50 per cent, in power. The common wedge drills wear on the corners and will 
ihen stick in the hole. Not so with the Paddy. 

Fifth— By using the Expansion Drill we can force a stream of water through the Drill, 
and keep the Drill working on the clean cut surface, the dirt passing up the pipe. With 
the common drill the clippings remain and clog the bottom of the hole and the force of 
the blow is spent continually pounding on the already loosened clippings, until the Drill 
is taken out and the hole cleaned with the sand pump. 

Ques. 2. — Is the cut of the Paddy an exact picture of it ? 

Ans. 2— No, sir. We make them .of different styles to suit all materials and condi- 
tions. 

Ques. 3. — Can you make me one toi rope or pole Tool 10 I can drill a round hole ? 

Ans. 3. — Yes, sir. Send us the Drill Rod box or a template of the exact tread, and 
we will give you the most perfect tool you ever used ami guarantee you can drill a large 
hole below your casing, but you will have to draw out and sand pump the same as you do 
now. Fix your sand pump so that it cannot catch under the casing. 

Ques. 4. — Flow deep can you sink a well with your Expansion Drill and self cleaning 

apparatus? 

Ans 4. — We are sinking three now and everything works nicely, and as the tools are 
new we can only say what we know from experience. 

One well at Fort Sully, D. T\, for the U. S. Government, now down 509 feet. 

One at Akron, Col., for the B. & M. R< R. ? now down 651 feet. 

One at Vicksburg, Miss , for the D. W. Floweree Ice Co., now down 1,000 feet. 

Ques* 5. — How deep did you ever put in one line of pipe or casing in a caving mate- 
rial ? 

Ans. 5. — We put in 637 2-12 feet of 5-inch pipe, where the well had been sunk 165 

feet by others, at which depth they were stuck in river sand. This bed is 100 feet thick. 

After passing through it there is 16 feet of sand rock, then 456 feet of indurated clay mixed 

with shells. The only way to get through the caving material was to use the driver and 

drill at the same time, otherwise a few blows of the driver would have caused the casing to 
pack the bottom and have prevented it from going down. 

Ques, 6. — How far can you drill with this Tool without removing it from the hole ? 

Ans. 6. — At a depth of 410 feet we drilled 230 feet, making 640, cutting a 9-inch hole 
and sinking a 5-inch pipe. 

Ques- 7.— I understand then that you drilled 230 feet and sunk the casing and kept 
the drill clippings out of the hole. 

Ans. 7. — Yes, sir. We guarantee with these tools to clean out the drilling, without 
removing the tools as must be done with other tools. 

Ques. 8.— I have experienced trouble in keeping a round hole. Will your Paddy Ex- 
pansion Drill do it? 

Ans. 8. — Yes. The Paddy strikes first, when closed and small, and the weight of the 
Rods and the momentum of the blow forces the wings asunder and do not allow the point 
to turn the drill aside, and the tools work so perfect that I have never experienced the 
slightest difficulty. You must not loose sight of the fact that the water jet coming directly 
to the cutting edge, carries the dirt up and helps to cut the hole. With this combination 
there seems not the slightest chance for an improvement. The exclamation with well men 
is, " l( I had had these tools years ago, I should have been a rich man before this."

Hydraulic Jetting Well Machinery. 



Chapman's Lightning Well Sinking Machinery, or the Hydraulic Jetting Process and 
Machinery, so far excel all others that they cannot be contrasted with any, and being pro- 
tected by patents and applications for patents pending, there cannot legally be anything of 
the kind made by any other manufacturer, and should we find such we will give either the 
dealer, maker or user, the benefit of bitter experience. 

With this combination the Expansion Drills are used, which make a hole large enough 
for the casing to fall easily, and do not need to be removed for repairs as they are so made 
to pry the rock or dirt loose, working in harmony with a current of water forced around the 
drill under hydraulic pressure. They will practically drill one hundred feet without tiie 
necessity of removing. 

The Combination Jetting Rig is set up the same as the hydraulic set, Fig. 109. A horse 
power is shown in the cut, but a steam engine is better adapted for large or deep wells. 
In this process a pump is used and connected to the Drilling Machine, fur Horse Power 
Machines. Our Steam Engine Rig is more complete, A hose from a force pump is con- 
nected to the hollow hydraulic drill rods by a suitable swivel. On the lower end of the rods 
which screw together in sections is the Paddy Expansion Drill, with holes so arranged that 
tin water passes from the force pump, through the hose, down the rods and out through the 
holes in the Drill, the force of the water at the same time helps to cut the hole. The water 
then comes directly in contact with the newly cut debris, carries it up quickly in large cut- 
tings, but the vibration of the rode crushes it more or less in its passage out so that by the 
time it has reached the top in a 500 foot well it is in the form of mud flowing freely with 
the water. (Two tanks may be used, one at a time, to catch the mud and save the water, as 
the mud settles, to be used again.) After a sufficient depth has been drilled proceed to pot 
in the casing as follows : Disconnect swivel from Drill Rods, place a length of Drill Rods 
inside a length of casing, put Drive Block on upper end of Drill Rods and connect Swivel, 
raise all together, then connect Drill Rods, then proceed to lower the casing first, or lower 
casing, and drill at the same time. In case of quicksand and gravel they must both be 
driven together, as fast as you drill a hole the casing must follow into it. In this manner 
you can sink a hole to a great depth very fast. Do not sink more than 200 feet without 
removing the tools to examine. 

Our hurry to get to press with this Catalogue has prevented us from illustrating the 
Jetting Machine set up. Page 12 shows a ground section of the Tools at work. The 
Drilling Machine is the same as the Hydraulic, with force pump connected to the shaft of 
the Balance attachment by means of a pitman. The Derrick is made of 8 pieces 2x6 scant- 
ling 18 feet long, bolted together in pairs with a 4 foot lap so as to make four legs.

GOING THROUGH QUICKSAND 




Fig. in. 

In this cut we represent our machine at work when passing through deep beds of 
quicksand, sea mud, and such deposits found along river bottoms, and is the same as illus- 
trated in Figure 109. The hollow block is used to settle the casing at the same 
time the hole is being deepened. 

The operation of making the hole is the same as illustrated in Fig- 109. The driving 
I 'lock is guided to place by the drilling rods, and is dropped occasionally, as may be 
required, without stopping the pumping process. 

It will be observed by this arrangement that we have mustered the art and overcome 
the difficulties that are encountered where quicksand and similar deposits are found. This 
device will be appreciated by experts in well sinking. 

We challenge well men to find any bed of quicksand that we cannot penetrate. Here- 
tofore, by all methods that have been used, quicksand has baffled the skill of the most suc- 
cessful, and enormous amounts of money have been spent to obtain wells in such localities. 
We can say conscientiously, that quicksand is "our fat," for instead of bang the hardest, 
it is now, by this process, rendered the easiest to penetrate. 

At the bottom of those beds hard pan, in thin stratas, is usually found, ;md by going 
through it, a flow of water is always reached. Tt is not necessary to go through Uu ami if of 
a coarse or gritty nature, as a screen can be set in those beds, which successfully filters the 
water. We will not here describe how this is accomplished, and it is held as a secret with 
us, and given only to parties who are justly entitled to it— having and using on veil tools.

DIAMOND MACHINE AT WORK. 




DIAMOND BORING BIT, 



Fig. ii2. 

The above illustration represents our Diamond Boring Attachment, as applied to our 
Hydraulic Machinery. This machine is the same as previously illustrated, and in addition 
is provided with belts and pulley, to rotate the diamond drill, and can be used for cutting 
the hardest rock. The operation of our diamond boring machine is as follows : 

The diamond bit is screwed on a wrought iron pipe (see Fig. 
113) and is inserted into the hole to be bored and rotated very 
rapidly. A stream of water is forced into the boring rods by 
our Hydraulic Jetting Machine, which carries the cuttings up 
the casing to the surface, leaving the core in the core °lil'ter 
undisturbed as cut from its bed. After a sufficient distance 
has been bored, the roda are withdrawn and the core with 
them. The core shows exactly the strata of rock as they naturallv 
are, and for mining and prospecting this is the only true method

PADDY EXPANSION DRILL 



^T 1 "V7"0^ 



On the annexed cut, the small figure shows the Paddy, closed as it 
passes through the casing. In the large cut the wings are shown open 
prying the dirt loose, and the course of the debris up the casing is shown 
by the direction of the indicating arrows. In making a well with the 
jetting tools either steam or horse power is used, according to the depth 
of the well to be sunk. The Derrick is made and set up similar to that 
for the hydraulic Tools. With these tools are provided pulley blocks, 
single, double or treble, according to depth. In drilling shallow wells 
the cam plate of the driller should be set to give the tools a drop of say 
2.% feet for 100 foot wells, but in deep wells the length of drop can be 
lessened on account of the weight of the Tools. This is done by add- 
ing more blocks and thereby the strain on the power and Driller is 
equalized in deep and shallow wells and reduced to a minimum. Our 
Hydraulic Jetting Machine will drop from one inch to three feet. In 
sinking a well, pipe a size larger than the well to be made can be used. 
By this means the operator will be surer of reaching the desired depth, 
or one size pipe can be used to the bottom of the well. After the well 
is completed this larger pipe can be pulled out, unless a vein of salt, 
alkali or sulpher has been passed through. In which case leave the 
larger pipe in, and fill the intermediate space between the two pipes 
with hydraulic cement, so as to prevent the salt, &c, from destroying 
the iron, also to shut off connection with the surface. By this means 
the well will so last for all eternity. On the annexed cut the rope fast- 
ened to the swivel on top of the rods, passes through the pulley block 
on top of the Derrick and from there to the Drum. 

The larger pipe is shown in the upper part of the ground sec- 
tion. A portion is cut out of the well casing to show the Hy- 
draulic Rods, to the bottom of which is attached the Paddy Expan- 
sion Drill. The pump is worked by horse or steam power, the water forced 
through the hose down the hollow rods through the Paddy and comes 
in contact, under considerable pressure, with the newly cut surface, 
keeps the Paddy clean and, in working in harmony with the Drill, 
sinks the hole rapidly. The clippings after being pulverized by the 
vibration of the rods are forced up as shown by the arrow 
and passes out as illustrated in the cut. By this process and 
the use of the Paddy, two very important points are gained. 
First, the hole is made large enough to allow the casing to follow, and 
second, there is no necessity to keep on continually removing the tools 
every few feet to clear the hole. Since using the Paddy well men write 
us **no more hard pipe driving," li hard pipe driving in a thing of the 
I past/' We have sunk 200 feet at a depth of 500 without removing t* 
tools, bat kept drilling right along, and when the tools were removed to 
examine it took 1% hours to remove them. Now any practical man can 
see the enormous amount of time that is v red by other processes 
when i 1 . hours are consumed every * feet removing tools. Full 
instructions how to operate sent with every set.

OF THE 



CHAPMAN 

HYDRAULIC RESERVOIR 

TUBE WELL. 



Made by the Hydraulic Drilling Process, 
and is used extensively for 

Farm, Stock, Manufacturing, 

City and Railroad 

Purposes. 

This Hydraulic Process pumps the hole 
in the ground, after boring down a number 
of feet, which is cased with wrought iron 
pipe, and after reaching water below hard 
pan, pumps out the fine sand, leaving only 
the gravel, and thus forms the reservoir, 
as illustrated in Fig. 116. 

The pumping is effected by pouring 
water into the hole, (this is done as illus- 
trated in Fig, 109,) and forming a slush, 
which is raised to the surface by means of 
hollow drill rods with valves opening up- 
wards at interval of. say. thirty feet, work- 
ing inside of the casing which is to form the 
wall of well. (The casing can be driven 
•at the same time the pumping or drilling 
is taking place.) 

To the bottom of drill rods is attached 
a drill with a valve opening into them. 

By the means of Chapman's Hydraulic 
Drilling Jack, connected to a horse power 
(see cut 109,) the rods are automatically 
raised and dropped suddenly. The drill- 
ings, or slush, being lighter, do not fall 
hs fast as the drill rods, consequent I j 
when the rods reach the bottom, as in Fig. 
116, part of the drillings that were be- 
tween valves A, B and G, have passed 
above the next higher valves and thus 
caused a partial vacuum between A and B, 
which, together with the falling force of 
rods, causes more slush to pass through A 
and fill the vacancy. The rods bei ng 
raised again, the same operation is per- 
formed, and thus the slush will soon pass 
out of ts)p as provided for in cut 116. This 
performs the work rapidly and efficiently, 
and obviates the necessity of removing 
drills from the hole till the well is finished. 

When water is reached a reservoir may 
be pumped as before described, and as the 
hard pan, the last strata passed through 
beiore reaching water, is of a rocky and 
impervious nature, it remains in place, 
and thus prevents all salts, alkalies, sul- 
phui, mineral, or organic substances from 
coming in contact with the vein, and thus 
destroying the good quality of the water, 
besides keeping the dirt from above from 
falling into and being carried up with the 
sand, when pumping the reservoir, and 
with the water when well is finished. It 
will be seen that this process insures an 
unfailing supply of water free from drain- 
age, and leaves a clear bed of gravel which 
acts as a filter through which all the water 
must pass. And frequently these wells 
overflow, being in every respect equal to a 
spring in quality and quantity. 

The great advantage these tools have 
over others lies in the fact that they do not 
need to be removed from the hole while 
making the well, consequently the ease and 
rapidity with which they work. The deep- 
er they go the greater their weight and the 
better they work, (as the heavier they are 
the quicker they drop, and the quicker 
they drop as compared with the fall of the 
Slush within, the faster they pump.)

CHAPMAN'S MAGIC EARTH AUGERS 

They are made of the best material, and to- 
gether mil bore the fastest and easiest of any 
augers in the world. Four-inch is the size 
generally used. They are indispensible to 
well men. A bores in soil, loose sand, gravel, 
clay and small stones; B is hard steel, and 
bores in blue clay, soft sandstone and soapstone. 
They are used to start the hole for the hydraul- 
ic or jetting tools; are also used by the drive 
well men, and will be found to be very useful 
to men having long augers, as they can go down 
with these when they cannot with the general 
earth augers.

Fig. 27 M, Monkey, same price as the Paddy, and does similar work. We have greatly improved 
these Expansion Drills since getting out the above cut, 

I consider your Paddy Drill the greatest improvement of the age. I would not be 

without it. The last well I made I struck the hardest kind of clay ; an auger would not 

work in it, so I put on the Paddy Drill and in two hours made 30 feet and struck water. I 

had to hold the easing back. The well is 130 feet deep. Jay Van Deryolgen. 

Batavia, 111., March 17, 1884. 

We have used your Paddy Drill the past season and find it to be just what you claim 
for it. It works to perfection. Do not know how we could get along without it. With us 
hard pipe driving is a thing of the past. Da vis & Haas. 

Union, Iowa, March 24, 1884. 

On April 1st, 1884, we put your Paddy Drill into a 3}-inch pipe which was down . 20 
feet deep, and on April 10th we had sunk the casing to a depth of 973 feet ; in nine day. we 
sunk 253 feet, drilling a large hole for the casing go down, and the drill has not been taken 
up vet ; we are now in quicksand. This well is to furnish water for making ice for the 
I K \V. Floweree Ice Co. The drill cuts a 6-inch hole. Ar ^

CHAPMAN'S PATENT WELL TESTER AND CLEANER. 

It is used in finishing a well, cleaning and testing it for water. It com- 
bines check valve, cylinder and plunger, and is used with the regular hydraulic 
5 'fl well rods. It has these advantages : 

1st.— It can be inserted into the well and removed altogether, at once. 

2ad. — It will clear the screen of sand, 

3rd.— It will unseat the check valve, when the screen clogs ; clean it and go 
pumping again. 

4th.— With it you can thoroughly and satisfactorily test the well for amount 
of water, without putting on the regular pump. 

Description and Operation. 

^ .- The tube S E is small and long enough to reach nearly to the bottom of the 
2 5| screen, within say 6 inches. D is the packing for the check valve A, which packs

b 51 by being forced down the same as Chapman's well valves. The water passes 
up through A and out into the well through F ; it again enters F as the plung- 
er B comes down, and then its operation is like any pump, and the water 
comes up out of the pipe rods or drilling tools and is delivered above ground. 
This simple devise is easily understood when seen, and cannot fail to suit 
practical well men.

NEW AND IMPROVED SAND DRILL 

This Drill is designed to be used with the hydraulic and 
jetting tools to work in sand or gravel, and is so constructed 
on the lower end with partitions, which will not admit of 
anything entering the flrill larger than will pass through the 
orifice of the valve, thus overcoming the trouble heretofore 
experienced, of course gravel clogging the valves. It is pr< 
vided with a clapper valve, for using with hydraulic tool 
which is not needed with the jetting. It is made of the be 
cast cast steel, and warranted to work as represented.

the first shaft and oper- 
ate machines, and at the 
same time have a power 
from which a still high- 

er speed can be obtained, 

for some other special purpose. The~Tunibling-rod, when connected with the first shaft, 
gives the same speed as No. 1 Power, but when connected with the Second ^haft, has 
seventy-four revolutions per minute, and when connected with our No. 8 or jso.a jacKs, 
would give their band-wheel shafts about three hundred revolutions per imnute. lnis 
power, like No. 1, is in active demand for a variety of uses. Price, with Levers, one lum- 
bling-rod and one Safety coupling (Fitly), $85 00. 

jBgg^We will arrange the motion of these Powers to suit any machinery, according to plan.

We will contract to make Hydraulic Wells with our Hydraulic Tools with ourZ Drills

warrant every article to be well made and suitable for its uses. Any Haws or imperfections 
in workmanship will be made good, and upon notice of such defect we deliver, free aboard 
cars here, any article found defective. As we own and run our own works, and are practi- 
cal men, we do not think that you can get a better class of work done than we are turning 
out ; besides, we have so many valuable Patents, that it seems to us that ours is so far ahead 
of other methods that it would be useless for you to use others, knowing the superiority of 
our goods. Cheap goods are dear at any price, even for making Wells when the work done 
is often hundreds of feet from you.

handy device for wind mill use, and is fitted for two-inch pipe or 
less, and adapted to force the water under ground. Its delivery 
being four feet below the surface, prevents its freezing. It has a

Wrought Iron Force Pump. 



Chapman's Patent Three-Way Hydraulic 

Force Pump Head. 

FOR WIND MILL OR HAND USE. 

This cut shows our new Anti-Freezing Wind 
Mill Force Pump, with a three-way ball cock. The 
sectional cut shows the ball. It has two rubber 
seats. By pulling up the small knob, the ball seats 
itself in the pipe like a cork in a bottle, and pre- 
vents the water from coming up ; by pushing down, 
it prevents the water going down. Its air chamber 
is 6 feet, of 1] inch wrought iron galvanized pipe, 
and extends 4 feet below the surface. It has a 
brass or steel rod and brass stuffing box. By re- 
moving the stuffing-box, the valves can be with- 
drawn for repairs without taking ott the pump. 
When desired, a safety valve will be furnished, 
which stops the wind wheel when the tank is full. 
This is done by a float-valve, which causes the 
water to pour into a keg which is attached to the 
shut-off gear t and when full, drops down, throwing 
the wheel out ot r. A small hole is in the keg 
and the water slowly leaks out, and when empty, it 
rises and starts the wheel again. 

All joints have a gas-pipe thread, and any 
plumber can supply any part. There no cast 
iron to rust the water, and it is the mo perfect 
pump ever designed for the trade. The enlarged 
section cut in the figure shows how the three-way 
anti-freezing ball cock is applied. 

The artist has made this cut out of proportion, 
and we guarantee it to be a very pretty design. 

ANTI-FREEZING PUMPS. 

Fig. 103 illustrates the mechanism of a part of 
our anti-freezing pumps. .The ball represented in 
the. cut is connected to the top of the pump by a 
small iron rod and acts as a cork to a bottle, so that 

the water can be raised to the surface, or throwu 
out at pleasure, by raising or lowering the ball. 
We make all styles of this pump double acting.

Wrought Iron Saw Mill Pump. 

ROTARY POWER AND HAND PUMPS. 



/*T-, 



**V MIL* 









This cut illustrates our new improved Pump Stand. It 
extends four feet below the platform, and is frictionless. Has 
no top guide. Can be used for rotary power, or hand or horse 
power, as the power attachment can vibrate. It is provided 
with an approved safety valve, which stops the mill, etc., and 
has three strokes and a steel or brass piston rod. Is nearly 
all wrought iron— handsome and strong. A cylinder can be 
located at any desired distance below the working head. 
But with this, as with all the Chapman patent pumps, their 
adaptation to deep wells and repairing has been a consider- 
ation and provided for by an extra large bushing or plug at 
the stuffing box, and can be removed to take out the plunger, 
etc. This is quite a consideration to the purchaser, saving 
at least one dollar each time the packing wears out. We 
have designed a large number of pumps, but we are frank to 
say this one combines more good points than any of them, 
and we cannot see where it is possible to add the slightest 
improvement. 

The hydrant part of this pump, with five feet of 1 inch pipe, 
and nozzle, $4.00 ; 2 inch pipe, or less, $6.00. 

We make all styles of this pump double acting.

Rule for Getting the Capacity of Pump, and Power Required. 



We lay down the following for calculating the capacity of any Piston Pump : Multiply the area of bore of 
cylinder of pump, by the length of stroke, and that result by the number of strokes per minute the pump is 
working. This gives the quantity of water in cubic inches. Divide this by 331, number of cubic inches in a 
gallon, and you have the total capacity of pump per minute, in gallons and fractions of a gallon. And to ascertain 
the power required, multiply number of gallons per minute by 8.35, weight of one gallon, and this result by total 
number of feet water is raised, (that is, from surface of the water to the highest point to which the water is raised,) 
and you have the pswer in foot pounds Divide by 33,000 and you have the horse power. One horse power is 
equal to about five men. To the theoretical power a liberal allowance ior friction, etc., always wants to be 
added. It is better to get doubl e the power required.

O 



Fig. 106 illustrates an entirely new 
arrangement for a hand horse-power 
and wind mill pump. The handle is 
adjustable, as represented in the cut. 
When this pump is used by wind mill 
power, the hand and horse power are 
disconnected. When it is desired to 
use the horse power, detach the wind 
mill and simply connect the tumbling 
rod with the knuckle on the base of the 
pump ; this rotates the crank, giving 
the desired movement to the plunger. 

Attention, Dairy and Stock Men. 

This pump meets a long felt want 
as a reliable pump for dairy purposes 
and stock use, also railroad and fire 
purposes. It is always ready to be 
staked to the ground, so there is no 
expense in setting up, and is the 
cheapest and most durable pump now 
m use.

Tubular Well Force 

Pump. 



This pump is especially designed for tabular 
wells in cold countries, as ihe pipe screws in near 
the spout. It bolts together just below the spout, 
so that the tubular well valves can be withdrawn 
for repairs without unscrewing the pump. It also 
has an outlet to force the water and to fill elevated 
tanks. In that case an adjustable nozzle is placed 
over the spout to prevent the water from running 
out. It is made of cast iron and tapped for 1\ } 1_. 
2, 2} or 3 inch pipe, and suitable for wells from 50 
to 300 feet. It has a 6 or 10 inch stroke, and is also 
made without the force pump connections.

Chapman's Patent Well Screens. 

The success of a well depends so much on a properly constructed well screen that we 
have made one that meets all the requirements. There are many wells that do not yield 
enough water, and the cause is often that there is not enough capacity, or the sediment 
settles in the bottom. We have seen well men take a worn-out piece of pipe and drill fifty 
f inch holes in it, and some stormy day take it to a tin shop and have it covered. The 
oubleisthat there are not enough holes and the milk strainer is not suitable, and the 
consequence is that the wells do not give satisfaction. We make a screen and sell it to you 
so cheap that we do not expect to make any money oft it, but by your doing better work 



our sales will be larger.

Fig. 122 is a Well Bottom bored out smooth, like Fig. 75, but having a Strainer on the bottom so when it is 

down on to hard substances, in course grave) or rock, the water can come in and the hole is complete, and the 

screen is -seated as soon as the Tube is down. This is a favorite with well men. The price is the same as Fig. 75. 

All these inventions are owned by us, and parties infringing will have to pay the damage the courts will allow. 

CHAPMAN'S MIDDLE LINE OIL WELL CYLINDER. 

This Cylinder is bored smooth, of a superior pipe. It is pol- 
ished for the sucker to work in, and is used several feet up the 
pipe and screwed between the pipe. Its use is this: The water 
rises up hundreds of feet, and it is not necessary to put the 
sucker down so low, the check goes to the bottom, or is seated 
above the screen, or in the pipe, as required. A steel shoe, 

lives and screens included. -,, 

Fig. 5. 

SMOOTH BORED OIL WELL BOTTOM. 

Fig. 22 is a well-point, or bottom, 4 feet long, having a screen inside of a 
well tube. It may be driven down into the sand or gravel in the bottom of the 
dangerous well, and w r hen deep enough draw the Lube back, leaving the screen 
in the water stratum ; drop in the check valve and plunger attach either pump, 
and you have a good well ; or you can drive a pipe from the top of the ground', 
and make a good well in earth or sand, regardless of depth, as the pump i s in 
the bottom of the well ; or, if you have a poor drive well, with only half enough 
water, put tnis in and use air-chamber, and you will hare a good well. The 
smallest pipe we use for the valves to work in is a two-inch pipe, and by taking 
off the top of the pump, the valves can be withdrawn, and the strainer also if 
you choose. 43* Does not tear the screen in driving.

. DESCRIPTION OF THE " ADVANCE" WROUGHT IRON MAST WIND ENGINE. 

The derrick and platform arc built of wood. (See cut.) The hollow wrought iron shaft resting one-half its length 
below the platform on a pivot having a bearing in the platform, and extending far enough above the platform to allow 
the wheel to swing around. The main casting, No. i, is secured to the upper end of the mast, and the bearings for 
the shaft of the wheel extend outward from the turning post the usual distance, then the arms or spokes of the wheels 
incline backward, so that the weight of the wheel rests upon the boxes. (See cuts on page 63.) The wind sails, 
pump rods, spokes and rudder are wood in the Advance and Wood Turbine. The I run Turbine have iron sails and 
rudder; the working parts are otherwise alike. (There is a mistake in the drawing of the sail section. The arms 
or spokes must pass through the rim of the sail, directly the reverse of what it shows.) No. 30 is an iron rod, not a 
chain, as represented. We make the sail section with bent or straight reams, to suit the taste of purchaser.

DIRECTIONS FOR 

ING TOWER. 

(Fig. 8, W.) 

first— Splice the Corner Posts, lay 
them side by side, and square them 
off to length. 

Second— Space off the Posts from 
the Braces, marking square across the 
four sticks at once, according to the 
distance given in the cut. The first 
mark ( 5 feet from top ) for 10-foot, and 
one-half the diameter for all other 
sized Mills. In building: any height 
of Tower, always bring the first Brace 
to within two feet of the ground, and always put the 
Mast Sill at the distance from the top here given ; the 
intermediate Crosses can be varied according to height 
of Tower, spacing off that corner of each Post which 
is to come on the inside, ( See end view of Tower at 
top of cut.) Lay out two of the sticks in the form of 

Third— The top should be 20 inches wide. Spread 
the bottom of the " A " 9 feet for a 36-foot Tower, and 
nail a temporary stay-lath to hold it in place. The 
rule for the bottom spread in all Towers is one-fourth 
the height. Tack on the Girts, bringing the upper 
edge to the marks as before stated, use each of these 
Girts as a pattern to cut the other three by, two of 
which should be cut two inches longer than pattern, to 
allow for lapping over the ends of the other two. Cut 
the diagonal Braces, using the first cut as a pattern to 
cut the other seven by, which belong in the same sec- 
tion of the Tower as the pattern. On four of the 
diagonal Braces of each set allow an extra inch to lap 
over the ends of the other four to cover the joints. 
To get length of diagonal Braces, measure across be- 
tween the horizontal Girts diagonally from one corner 
to the other, and rack the corner Posts until the dis- 
tances from one corner to the other each way are 
equal Then scribe on diagonal Brace, using the first 
cut as a pattern for the other seven, allowing an extra 
inch on the end of four Braces, top and bottom in 
each section, for lap to cover up the joints on the other 

four. . _ * 

Proceed in the same manner with each section in 
the Tower, observing the following rule: that the 
diagonal Braces should all be of uniform length and 
cut with the exception of those on braces, which 
allowance has been made for lap. The two braces 
which form the cross on each of the four sides of the 
Tower should be exactly alike, and the Tower posts 
racked out or in to accommodate the joint. 

When the two sides of the Tower are completed, 
turn them up edgewise with Braces outside set the 
four Posts in platform, and proceed to put the other 
two sets of Braces and Girts on. Raise the lower up 
bodily by pulleys and ropes. Before anchoring, level 
the Tower with a spirit-level on the lower Girts. 1 he 
Anchor-posts should be at least eight inches through at 
the bottom, and go into the ground at least five feet 
and have a cross-piece on bottom, so Tower cannot 
pull up or sink down. Never drive in the Anchor- 
posts, but dig holes and set them down level Alter 
building the ladder, as shown in the cut, nail it to the 
side of Tower most convenient. Put the Mill together 
as shown in Directions for Mill.

THE "ADVANCE" AND "TURBINE" MILLS. 

For Grinding Feed, Shelling Corn, Cutting Hay and Straw, Making Meal, 

and for all Power Purposes from 1 to 40 Horse Power. 

The greatest labor saving machine ever invented. A self-regulating Wind Mill that 
will not blow away, and will grind feed, shell corn, cut hay and straw, make meal, graham 
and buckwheat flour, saw wood, elevate grain supply power for machine and work shops, 
for sawing, drilling, lathe turning, and all other purposes to which any power can be applied. 

The cheapest motive power in existence is the force of wind. It can be utilized without 
preparation; no reservoirs, dams, or flumes, are needed to apply it by our machinery, and 
the proper engine alone is to be provided. 

Having studied carefully the cause of breakage or damage to Wind Mills of all classes, 
we have set about to make a better Mill than has ever been made before, using wrought 
iron derrick head or mast of a small diameter, as the wood work above the platform has in 
most instances been the cause of breakage. We have been in the Wind Mill and Engine 
business since 1861. 

WIND MILL BALANCED GEAR MOTION. 

The object of our invention is to transmit full power of the wind wheel to the mechan- 
ism and use the whole power of the wind. The difficulty heretofore experienced was that 
the wheel could not face the wind. First the wind wheel gear would roll around on the 
perpendicular gear until the wind pressure on the opposite side of the tail vane equalled 
the work performed — the wheel had just its full force, and the cross strain on the wheel 
and vane was damaging to the whole mill, and a large Mill had tobevsed to do a small amount 
of work. To satisfy yourself of this fact, we respectfully refer you to the Mills in use pump- 
ing water only, but at this date most all Wind Mill Companies have a rotary ratchet motion, 
which is deficient, imperfect, noisy and short lived, and is no way suitable for the purposes 
required. Do not class our Geared Balanced Mill with that movement 

Fig. 10 W is a plan of our Gearing and 
a part of our Mill, being similar to our 
pumping Mill (see cut), to which we re- 
fer for a general description. B B are 
cog wheels attached to each end of the 
same hollow shaft, C C, or cog wheels 
attached to each end of a shaft that runs 
inside of shaft and cog wheels B B. 
Now, if the wind wheel and gear attach- 
ed is rotated, then B C will revolve in 
opposite direction and cause the gear 
connecting to shaft I to revolve. E is a 
sprocket wheel, chain gear or pully,from 
which power is taken. 

We can use two belts at the bottom in 
the place of those gearing; one of the 
belts would be crossed. J is our iron 
turning mast, K is its step or rest, and 
H is an iron frame which holds the gear- 
ing in place. 

Now it will readily be seen that what 
inclination the wind wheel has to go in 
one direction, is balanced by its inclina- 
tion to go in the other direction, and it 
is so simple and perfect that it requires 
no further explanation. With a 12-foot 
Mill we can pump all the water and 
grind all the ieed for any farm of 160 
acres, and warrant it ; the corn bin 
should be large and hold at least two 
weeks' supply. Our 12-foot Wind Mill 
will grind from two to five bushels per 
hour, according to the wind and the fine- 
ness of the meal required. This is so 
p Fte. 10, w. perfect in its operation that we will erect 

it on trial, and if it does not work well, we will take it away, but it will pay for it>elf every 
year by the saving of feed. Remember that this is a perfect and durable machine, and not 
like the power mills heretofore used. We can erect our Mill, complete with all fixtures, 
pulleys and shafting, at a reasonable price. We will give prices or plans and estimates if 
you give us height of tower and all particulars you can think of.

AMERICAN WELL WORKS, AURORA, ILL 






Speeded Railroad Mills. 



We manufacture Railroad Pumping Wind Mills, 14 to 32 feet in diameter, and to get 
the greatest benefit of the wind, we gear our Mills so as to increase the stroke of the pump 
to its full capacity. With all Railroad Mills heretofore, a 24-foot would make 15 to 20 
revolutions per minute, hut with our device the number of strokes may be increased to 45, 
according to the conditions. A patent is applied for this device, and all wind mill makers 
are cautioned against using it. For railroad work it is well adapted, being mounted on a 
very heavy wrought iron mast, which extends down into the tower the same distance as it 
is required to extend above the platform, so that the wind wheel carries the weight squarely 
on the bearings, and travels within 1 foot of the centre. Being set on one side of % the mast 
for its governing principle, any sudden gale will carry it to that point where the wind force 
on the wheel equals the work performed. When out of the wind, it stands behind the 
mast, and there is not the leverage on this wheel to cause it to oscillate when it should be 
at rest. The wheel is of the solid pattern, has straight reams on all Railroad Mills, is 
made of wood, as also is the vane. Nearly all its mountings are wrought iron, and what few 
castings there are, will harmonize in expansion and contraction; once being set up tight 
will always remain so. Other Wind Mills have been secured to wood work, and the ex- 
pansion, contraction and shrinkage of the wood work have caused them to work loose on 
the derrick. The fans of this wheel being solid, cannot swing loose by accident, and there 
being very few places to oil, it will be readily seen that an ordinary common laborer can 
keep the Mill oiled, which is all that is necessary to keep it in order, while with other 
Mills, with their numerous joints and complications, it is required to have the skill and 
tools of a mechanical expert, and much labor to keep them in order. With our Mill there 
is no expense till it is entirely worn out. 



TESTIMONIALS. 



Batavia, III., February 28, 1883. 
American Well Works, Aurora, III. — Sirs: The 10-foot Wind Mill put up on my place last September 
works perfectly in all its parts, running and raising water from one of your wells put down eight years ago, which 
has a depth of 82 feet. This Mill raises water when Mills of other make in the neighborhood are standing still, 
waiting for more wind. Persons who watch its movements all admit it is the most perfect Wind Mill made. It 
is almost noiseless in its movements, and governs itself like a thing of life. There cannot be too much said in iis 
praise. Finally and fraternally, E. S. Bkadlhy. 

Blackberry, Kane Co., March 22, 1883. 
American Well Works, Aurora, 111.— Gentlemen : We have had one of tae Chapman Patent Wind Mills 
pumping one of their wells for ten years last fall, and it has not cost to exceed $2.00. It is the oldest Mill in the 
neighborhood ; one of our neighbors has erected three Mills since ours was put up. We recommend it as a good 
Mill. G. R. Outhouse. 

James Outhouse. 

LaFox, III., February 27, 1883. 
American Well Works, Aurora, 111. : Like my Mill very much ; runs smooth and steady in high winds.

Our Mills on the great Seedman's, HIRAM SIBLEY'S, Farms. 

The Burr Oak Farms, Sibley, III., Aug. 4, 1883. 
Gentlemen : I am pleased to say that the Wind Mills purchased of you for use of these farms and in our vil- 
lage give excellent satisfaction and while they work easily in a light wind they have also stood, without a particle 
of damage, \hz furious storms which have lately passed over this country. In one (so termed) cyclone we had 
last month two of our barns and one dwelling house were blown over and the Mill stood intact. In their gen- 
construction I see nothing to prevent their wearing as long as any style of Mill I have yet seen. 

Yours truly,

Fig. 9 W is our geared 
balanced rotary Wind Mill 
Grinding Mill No. 3 It 
should be erected on the 
second floor, having a large 
hopper holding about 100 
bushels ; in the next lower 
floor there should be a bin 
of the same capacity. Now 
let the meal run into the 
bin and you have a com- 
plete arrangement, always 
having feed ground ahead. 
This is the simplest ar- 
rangement. 

Next we can fit up shell- 
er, grinder and elevator, all 
on the same floor, with bins 
as in a mill or to meet your 
wants. 

Your corn bins can be 
filled at leisure, when it 
storms or when the boys 
want a rest. We make these 
without the stand, and it is 
then bolted to timbers. 
There should be a spout leading from the hopper to the grinder and a stop or slide to 
shut off the feed. We shall keep a stock of these goods on hand for this class of trade. 

The capacity of these Grinding Mills is about 2h bushels per hour for each horse power. 
Very fine meal would be perhaps some less, but coarse meal would be a great deal more, 
and a 12-foot Mill has 1.44 horse power and four bushels of corn or oats per hour would be 
a fair average of its capacity— and by increasing the power you increase the capacity by 

increasing the motion of the grinder. 

We make this size No. 3 with balance wheel pulley and belt, in place of ratchet wheel, 
and by using an intermediate pulley or Jack you can increase the revolutions of the feed 
mill and thus increase its grinding capacity. We make sizes suitable for all work, for 
horse or wind power, and warrant them to do as represented. 

PUMPING MILL FEED GRINDER. 

This is a very handy feed grinder and can be attached to a ^ 
10-ft. pumping Mill. It is bolted to a beam, and connected to 
the wind mill pump rod by means of suitable length of rod and 
elbow casting furnished with every Grinder.

TESTIMONIAL. 



American Well Works, Aurora, 111.— Gents : With your 16-foot power Mill, erect- 
ed for me this past summer, I have cut a cord of 4-foot wood twice in two in 55 minutes, 
and pumped at the same time. The Mill gives me perfect satisfaction.

NEW No. 1 

FOUNTAIN HOSE CARRIAGE. 

Carries 100 Feet 1-Inch Hose. 

An important and distinctive fea- 
ture in this Carriage is the unusual 
diameter of the reel, which takes on 
the hose in coils so large that the 
water will pass freely through it, so 
that instead of taking off all the hose 
every time it is used, it is only neces- 
sary to let off just sufficient to reach 
the point desired to sprinkle ; when 
coiled up', a few turns of the reel will 
effectually expel the water from the 
hose. 

In ordinary use it is not necessary 
to remove the nozzle from the reel or 
handle the hose, either when reeling 
off or on, or when in operation, as the 
reel can be fastened by a thumb 
screw, so as to poise the nozzle to the 
required angle, but it can be readily 
detached and placed in the clasp at 
the top of the standard and used as a 
fountain if desired.

AMERICAN WELL WORKS, AURORA, ILL. 




5. Upon very 
i he whole amoun 

highest rate of interest allowed in your State or Territory charged. (S 
of terms ) 

TERMS FOR TRIAL. 

6. To parties desiring to see tools work before purchasing, and who agree to purchase 
it result is as we claim m catalogue, we require that a contract be made for a well on our 
regular printed forms (which will be furnished on application) and forwarded to us with 
an advance of one-third the price of machinery, to convince us that the party means busi- 
ness. If satisfactory, we will send machinery ordered and a man to the place specified. 

We will allow one-third the profits of this well to party ordering machine to apply on 
payment, if it works as de ibed in catalogue; if not, we refund amount paid to us, pay 
him a fair price for his labor, and take all the profits. The profits shall be considered to 
he the total receipts, less the cost of the material used in the well and freight on the same 

The balance remaining due to be paid when tools are shown to work as represented. 

The party ordering the tools shall pay our man's railroad fare, expenses and time one way 
in advance, and board him while at work and assist in making the well. But it is under- 
stood that if parties ordering have not ordered a set of sufficient "depth" (that is, machinery 
suited to the depth of the well,) we shall exchange for suitable set of machinery, charging 
the difference in the price and all freights. 

This is the best way for you to order, as you can then learn the business and get the 
experience of an expert, and you are sure of making a success. This term only applies to 
Hydraulic and Jetting Sets. 

CONDITIONS OF EXPERTS, 

To parties failing to make our machinery work through lack of knowledge, we will 
furnish a man from the house who will superintend and assist in the labor of making one 
well, to show parties, and to give all necessary instructions about the use of the machine 
and the science of getting water out of the various stratas. 

First.— Provided that a contract be made for a well, with some good, responsible man, 
on our regular printed blank (which will be furnished upon application) and forwarded 
to us. We will assume all responsibility in this well and take the control, and allow the 
purchaser of the Tools one-third of theprotits. The party ordering the man shall provide 
board, lodging and all necessary tools to make the well, and shall pay our man's railway 
fare, expenses and time one way in advance. The profits of this well shall be considered 
the total receipts, less the cost of material used in the well and freight on the same. These 
conditions apply only to Hydraulic and Jetting Sets, and in territory known by us, 

N. B. — Send us a statement of the financial standing of the party who signs the well 
contract and thereby save delay, as we will in no ca^e send our men till we satisfy ourselves 
that the party ordering the well is financially responsible It is no use sending for a man 
unless these conditions are complied with. The cash must accompany the order. 

HOW WE WORK BY THE DAY. 

Second. — We will send a man to show you how to run the tools, either Hydraulic or 
Jetting, to not a greater depth than 600 feet, provided the tools are paid for, at $5.00 a day 
and his expenses from the time he leaves till he returns (his expenses en route), to include 
hotel bill and first-class transportation. No deduction will be made for lost time from 
rainy days or any other cause except our man refuse to work ten hours in g I weather, 
or act in any manner unbecoming a gentleman, in which case it shall be the duty and obli- 
gation of the party ordering the man to notify us immediately of such act. We will then 
deduct the time he may lose, and reprimand him. This is your speculation — we receive 
no gain nor suffer any loss. An advance to cover transportation both ways and one week's 
wages must be sent with the order. 

COST OF MATERIALS. 
Price paid for 200 feet 2 inch well $400.00 

COST OF MATERIAL.
